I suppose you could call them a parallelagram fork. The springs are in the fork tubes, under the domed end-cover there is a "rocker" that compresses the spring. There is also a central oil dampner as part of the steering head. I have some pictures somewhere from when I tore down the forks on my first KS750. If I can find them I will post some pictures.

One downside of the KS750 is that Zundapp decided to make it very complex and well built, most of its bearing are needles. That includes suspension as well as the engine mains.......
